zero sum game

machine language
with which robots speak
in words of love
cold coded messages
the nuts and bolts
of information’s
supremacy over intimacy
no question of error
but a strict loyalty
to the neat linear
transfer of shared motives
all labour lost
towards unifying
the disputed territories
of the heart divided
shapeless reason
—usurping the crown
of earthly wisdom—
giving form instead to
mechanical desire
